IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

protonic.com CAN USE YOUR HELP Therefore this is a Blatant and Brazen Request for Clients and FUNDS.

In the past we have been able to operate ONLY from donations from our Clients. Apparently computers are getting better and our Clients are becoming more knowledgeable so donations have gone down considerably. Also, to keep highly motivated Technicians we need more Clients.

We thank everyone who has helped so far with Donations and Your Questions.

As you know all of us are volunteers. PLEASE consider making a donation at OUR DONATIONS PAGE and TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT US!.
